FTE or Faster Than Ever is a line of Hot Wheels Wheel Types.

Cars with this wheel had special nickel-plated axles, reducing friction and increasing the car's speed. It is always the same "bronze" color. FTE wheels are essentially the same wheels as the OH5SP but differ in color and axle. Due to the additional operation of nickel-plating the axles, these wheels are more expensive to produce than wheels on normal axles; both sets of wheels were no longer used by 2013.

The original FTE wheels were designed by Tim Parsey and Nathan Proch.

FTE2

FTE2 (Or Faster than Ever 2) is the replacement to the original FTE wheel that had been used on Faster than Ever models since 2005. FTE2 appeared halfway through 2011, and has been used since. FTE2's are generally not well received, as their design has been criticized for causing the car to crash on tracks after traveling at a high amount of speed, due to the wheels being considered "bumpy".

FTE2 wheels are essentially the same wheels as TRAP5 but differ in color and axle.
